Abstract: A simplified structural analysis procedure for high-clearance scaffold systems based on a 'set' concept is presented. The validity of this simplified procedure is confirmed by comparing the results with the more refined computer model developed in part one of this paper (Engng Struct. 1996, 18, 247-257). The effect of bamboo cross-braces on increasing the stiffness of the scaffold system is also investigated. On the basis of the analysis results, a simplified procedure for estimating the critical loads for scaffold systems and some recommendations for practical design are presented. Both the simplified analysis procedure and the recommended guidelines have the potential for use by engineers in the actual design of scaffold systems during construction.
